Most Farmers’ Markets are on Saturday mornings, so here is a rare chance to visit one on a Friday afternoon. Their mission of “providing access to healthy, local, affordable food while also bringing our community together and supporting our nearby growers” is supplemented by a healthy dose of Southern hospitality. You just might find hot dogs on the grill and warm apple cider is being provided when you visit.
You will definitely discover a wide assortment of vendors, from the expected produce growers to soap and candle purveyors, to homemade sauces and condiments, to custom bandanas for you and your pets.
Each week there is a variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables as well as hormone-free fresh meats & eggs, local honey, handmade soaps & candles, a variety of gourmet olive oils, vinegars and pickles, and even an on-site knife sharpening service.
You can stock up on your staples like potatoes, tomatoes, corn, and squash while also finding some new things to try- like beets, purple field peas, Swiss chard, or sweet cherries. Peaches, nectarines, and melons are standard fare. An onsite food truck makes dinner an option at this market.
